Summary

Absolutely the best Indiana Jones game of all time. The best ADVENTURE game of all time.

The Good

What is good about this game? Everything comes to mind. The sounds are authentic and realistic. The graphics aren't good when it comes to raw power, but it has a certain style that endears you to the feel of the game. The controls are simple and too the point and the puzzles are all logical. The voices are also excellent, even Doug Lee who does Indiana Jones. You can really believe who these people are and their dialogue will bring you into the Indiana Jones world.

The Bad

Not much except that occasionally there is a lot of walking back and forth between areas.

The Bottom Line

Some games have a near mystical quality. Like X-Wing, Jedi Knight, Star Trek 20th Anniversary and Star Trek : Judgment Rites. This game is right up there with them. Buy it.
